A comfy gray sectional is the perfect spot to relax in this urban-inspired basement. A flatscreen TV appears to float in one corner of the room, while the opposite corner features built-in, custom wine storage.
Storage isn't always about keeping things out of sight. This custom glass wine cabinet with refrigeration allows wine to be stored properly and tastefully while always being able to view what is on hand.
This room housed a piano and was rarely being used when we began this project. Due to the growing collection of wine, we were inspired to turn this into the ultimate wine tasting room. We designed a custom wine storage tasting island with waterfall sides, figured walnut bottle storage and bar service stations, painted the walls a deeper shade of gray for a more intimate atmosphere and completed it with a caviar style pendant.
An added touch just steps from the kitchen is this custom dry bar with wine rack. The cappuccino stained alder cabinets with frosted glass inserts and stone and glass linear backsplash complete the look.

When creating a bar to service the kitchen and dining room for a client who entertained regularly, Teri Turan’s biggest challenge was space: “We only had a 47-inch space to fit a wine captain, an ice maker, storage for top shelf bottles, mixers, glassware, cocktail napkins and bar paraphernalia,” she says. Custom cabinets and careful shopping for extra-small appliances got the job done. She finished off the look with Persia Pearl granite countertops and honed travertine tile on the backsplash.

The basement bar uses space that would otherwise be empty square footage. A custom bar aligns with the stair treads and is the same wood and finish as the steps. A dark charcoal wall is a complementary accent to the light gray paint. Glass subway tile adds a simple pattern to the space and open shelving keeps bottles organized and accessible.
Even the tiniest wet bar will be a boon for entertaining if you choose the right spot for it. “It makes sense to fit the bar near the traffic pattern of the party,” says Gretchen Brown, who created this diminutive 3 ½-foot-wide by 2-foot-deep drinks station using custom cabinetry painted in Benjamin Moore’s Snowfall White.
The custom built in shelving functions as a media center complete with wine rack. The shelves double as storage, as well as, a place to display accessories. The white shelving flow seamlessly into the walls and neutral space.
